New York-based makeup artist, Rose-Marie Swift, has been an authority in the beauty biz for over 20 years. (She's even done the faces for mega ad campaigns like, Louis Vuitton, Calvin Klein and Victoria's Secret.)
After finding out that her body had toxic levels of heavy metals, pesticides, solvents, and other chemicals a few years back, Swift launched RMS Beauty, the first truly organic color cosmetics brand in 2008. From juicers to books on eco-friendly sex, here are Swift's favorite environmentally-minded buys.
Green Star Juicer
"I start every day with a fresh made organic green juice."
"This is the ultimate green food and is packed with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes to aid digestion. It's truly a life saver when I travel for shoots."
"Aside from being a great read, this book makes it easy to incorporate greener ideas into your bedroom life."
Dr. Alkaitis Organic Day Crème
"Every single model I work with applies this to her face before any makeup is applied. It enhances tone and texture instantly."
RMS Beauty Raw Coconut Cream
"One of my favorite creations - this cream removes all makeup including the most stubborn waterproof mascara, in just a few gentle wipes. You can also use as a body moisturizer to soften dry skin. As you can see from the packaging, I'm also a fan of minimalistic design!"
"I love this NYC restaurant. Its environmental décor and organic food are the best in the city."
RMS Beauty Living Luminizer
"This is the best face highlighter ever. I blend it over the cheek bones, along the brow bones, down the bridge of the nose, and at the bow of the lips for a subtle, sexy shimmer. You can use it on the body, too."
